Sakura, a red cherry variety from Sataka Seeds came in first in flavor:
MG Barb Petrucci won the salsa contest.Sakura: Real sweet tomato flavor and firmness without being hard. One of the first varieties to ripen in our greenhouse, Sakura keeps going all season long because of its excellent disease resistance. Prolific yielder of bright red, shiny, medium-sized cherry tomatoes that average 15 grams. Excels in the greenhouse. Indeterminate.
Lots of pictures at our facebook page.
